Patients Are Never Too Old For Improving Smiles

Description:
Most people have a continuous need for looking their best… and this need does not stop during senior years. This video is about improving the smile of a soon to be 70-year old woman. Porcelain veneers were accomplished in a 2-day turn around using full contour pressable lithium disilicate.

Questions & Comments

Irene, I agree that etching and bonding all veneers at one time is stressful and therefore bonding 3 at a time is much easier to control the placement of the veneers. This gives you more time to initially clean up the margins and do preliminary finishing.

Thanks Dr. Goldstein for an excellent presentation. I agree with you wholeheartedly. Having treated patients in the past , who were terminally ill, I learned all about "Quality of life". Due to oral cancer treatment, some patients could not eat at all, however, I made them dentures, so they could smile and felt whole. And, by the way, I have the same workflow for veneers. But, I think, etching and bonding all preps would make me nervous, as the smallest amount of cementation paste contamination on an adjacent tooth could affect seating the next veneer. Regards

Thanks for asking the question, Sharon. First, I always have a consultation with my partner, Dr. Salama, who as you know is trained as both orthodontist and periodontist. If he feels that an orthodontic solution is not only best but practical as well then that is the way we go. However, in this case he agreed that a restorative option would be more practical for the patient. Therefore I began with the occlusal view and created a labio-occlusal line angle starting from the central/lateral to the 2nd molar, and that is where I decided the porcelain veneers would look reasonably good. Then I contoured the mandibular arch and pulled in #27 and #28 enough to create a better occlusion. If you look at the after occlusal view you will notice that #6 still is slightly labial but not noticable in the after smile. I do this treatment routinely when restoring crossbites via crowns, bonding, or veneers. there is another very similiar but much more dramatic on DentalXP that I did via bonding.

Dr Goldstein excellent presentation thank you How did you manage to improve the crossbite relationship with the veneers on #6 and #27? Do you just bring out the veneers more facially? Thank you!!

Bassam, the rational behind inserting the laterals last depends on whether the cuspids are better off cementing first after the bicuspids and if so then the laterals become the pivotal tooth in the arch. the reason is that one tooth must be the last piece of the puzzle and I can usually bond the bicuspids and even the cuspids easily. The centrals are to go in together so either the laterals or cuspids will be refitted next because there is always a microscopic(or macroscopic) difference in the fit after adjacent teeth are bonded. the posterior crown was Lithium Disillicate. And if the interdental papilla does not grow back as forecasted, then it is possible to make small porcelain pieces to fill in the spaces and they would be attached to one of the crowns to mask the space and I would bond porcelain to porcelain.

Dr.Gldstein, congratulations on such beautiful accomplishment. What is the rational behind inserting the lateral veneers the last? what material was the posterior crown made of? And last, what would you do if the black triangles do not get filled in?
Thanks.

great view.I total agree your outstanding opinion.

Esthetic Rehabilitation Using Porcelain Veneers - The MicroVision Approach
Nowadays our patients impose high demands to final outcomes especially in esthetically important zones. It is well known that the best way to get perfect results is minimal-invasive approach. And we can give our patients guarantied treatment based on microdentistry. Perfection, predictability, control, safety are small parts of the list of our modern opportunities that allow us to be successful. It is also proved that the role of magnification in the era of precise and non-invasive dentistry is mandatory. This webinar is about micro porcelain veneers. It based on MicroVision philosophy from planning to realization of esthetic rehabilitation.

Microscopic Dentistry; Practical Use in Restorative Dentistry Today
Restorative dentistry has changed in recent years. New materials and techniques allow the execution of partial restorations, direct and indirect, with metal-free techniques and started a true partnership between this discipline and prosthodontics. A good esthetic and functional rehabilitation starts from the proper clinical evaluation of the patient and of his problems, planning all the clinical and laboratory procedures in order to reduce the possibility of performing a subpar restoration. The use of high magnification in the right steps can improve our clinical result and optimize the session with the patient. The goal is to achieve the right balance between biology, esthetic and function by applying a minimally invasive approach.

Surface Roughness of Restroation Margin Preparations: A Comparative Analysis of Finishing Techniques
This study compared the margin profile and surface roughness created by the tips of four different finishing instruments: fine diamond, dura white stone, tungsten carbide, and ultrasonic diamond-coated tips (UDTs). The aim was to determine which of these instruments produced the smoothest finish and created the most evenly contoured margin characteristics. It was hypothesized that UDTs would produce a rougher dentin surface than a fine diamond bur, that a tungsten carbide bur would provide a smoother finish than a fine diamond, and that the dura white stone would produce an intermediate finish.
